Australia Decides 2020 contestant Jack Vidgen has tonight won the Celebrity Challenge on 'Australian Ninja Warrior'.


Competing against former Socceroo Archie Thompson and Olympic gold medal winning swimmer Emily Seebohm, Jack, 25, was the only celebrity who made it up the Warped Wall as the contest went to a tiebreaker after all three fell on the third obstacle.




Jack won $10,000 for the Trish Multiple Sclerosis Research Foundation, the same charity he supported when he competed on 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!' last year. The organisation is close to his heart as father Steve has the disease.


On receiving his trophy, Jack became emotional saying:


"It means a lot...my Dad has MS...it means the world".

Jack, who was mentored by former Fiji international rugby league footballer Eloni Vunakece, finished 8th at Eurovision: Australia Decides in 2020 with 'I Am King I Am Queen'.




Jack won Australia's Got Talent in 2011 at the age of 14 and was a semi-finalist on The Voice in 2019 before his appearance at Eurovision: Australia Decides.


In January 2020, he appeared on the second season of America's Got Talent: The Champions before appearing on 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!' last year. Last October, Vidgen was revealed as the 'Kebab' on 'The Masked Singer Australia' making it to the semi-finals.


Jack has also released four singles since his attempt at representing Australia at Eurovision. 'I Have Nothing' in 2020 and three singles in 2021 - 'Pray', 'Love Me Lonely' and 'Goodbye'.
